Clubs in the Nigeria Premier League have until week 10 to pay up all outstanding debts to players and officials.
This much was made known by the Nigeria Premier League through a statement signed by Special Adviser, Arthur Kwame.

All Nigerian Premier League clubs are indebted to their players and the NPL have said they will not sit back and allow the welfare of Nigerian League players to take a back seat.

“We want to make life more meaningful for players and officials in the domestic League and we are warning all clubs to fulfill their contractual obligations to its players and officials before week 10 matches.

NPL told the clubs in clear terms that they will not only fulfill the contractual terms, but should submit evidence that they have done so.

"All the clubs submitted letters of commitment from their sponsors and it is in view of this, that we are asking them to make sure that they fulfill their obligation to the players and officials.

"Failure to do so before week 10 will attract severe sanctions from NPL," Kwame said.

Meanwhile, Head of Media and Communications at the NPL, Emeka Nwani told that this action is just for the 2010/11 football season.

“We want to start from this season because we started with the current season. We will look at previous seasons later but for now we want to ensure that players and officials of Premier League clubs are paid for this season,” Nwani said.

He added that all 20 Premier League clubs are indebted to their players and officials for the current football season.
